The Color-Of-The-Year Shopping List — Hello, Radiant Orchid!

We've tangoed. We've sported our luckiest shade of green. And, now for 2014, Pantone decided to take it easy for the Pantone Color Of The Year. As in a relaxed, soft shade of purple called Radiant Orchid that's to become 2014's star hue.
As with every December, Pantone has announced the color that we can expect to see next year on just about every item we can possibly buy. And, while this selection may not be as punchy as those that have preceded it, we're totally up for the change of pace. We're sure the cool shade will make for an amazing spring nail polish, a fuzzy oversized coat, and certainly even a beautiful new quilt for an instant home upgrade. In other words, commit Radiant Orchid to memory — you're going to be spotting much more of it. And, we've culled 20-plus purple buys that'll enhance your wardrobe's palette now.
